Wait It's March?

It feels like SPRING!  woohoo right.  The winter was long, and I found myself cursing the snow/ice and yearning for LA sunshine more than a few times, but it is finally warming up here.  I don't have much to report, but here's the main points:

  • Midterms: Done.
  • Plane Ticket: Purchased.
  • Lent Running: Still happening.
I bought a plane ticket to LA - April 15th through 20th - in order to attend Coachella.  yay.  I definitely have finals the week after I get back...but I think the festival experience is totally worth it.  As for my goal to run for lent - that's still on and it has been rough, especially on those days I leave the running until after class.  Who wants to run after a full day of work and then 3 hrs of class?  Answer: no one.  But, Easter is in less than a month, it's only a month, right?  I'm pretty sure April is going to turn out to be a pretty great month.

In picture news, I sometimes run on a trail along the Potomac and come to this bridge.  I've ran on in a number of times (mostly on the weekends) and I think it's super cool.  I had been wanting to take some pictures of it since the first time I saw it.  Yesterday, I drove and parked near the bridge.  I went for a run and then grabbed my camera out of the car.  I didn't time my run right though and by the time I got back the bridge with my camera I had already lost the light, as the sun had set below the hills to the west.  The bridge runs North-South, so with the right low light, the sun passes through it in this really beautiful way, with these cool shadows.  I'm going to try to get back soon, before sunset.  

Well Happy Work Week all.
